Student Employment

Student employees are an integral part of our operations. With flexible hours and almost 80 employees, it is easy for students to arrange work schedules around classes and extracurricular activities.

Working with CP&S puts our student employees at the center of campus life, offering constant interaction with students, faculty & staff and the general public. It’s a fun and exciting work environment! New student employees are given a primary job assignment, but are also expected to function as energetic, committed team members, working together to provide excellent services and activities for the WFU community.

Some of the possible primary assignments are: Event Resource Managers, Information Desk, University Switchboard, Setup Crew, Office Assistants, Benson Ticket Office and our newest area, MRKT, a student team that designs creative marketing materials for Campus Programs & Services, as well as other student organizations and university departments. Please let us know if you’re majoring in Marketing or have particular creative skills!

  • Event Resource Managers
    Event Resource ManagersEvent Resource Managers assist campus groups with social events in campus facilities.

    How would you best describe your team’s role?

    ERM is, in my opinion, one of Benson’s unsung heroes. We make sure there are games and activities available on the Quad and in Zick’s, as well as offer event support to student organizations and university departments who host events on campus, whether that’s in an organization’s lounge space or one of the university’s larger venues, such as the Barn. This job station is diverse in both employee background and day-to-day tasks; some days our only focus is making sure there are enough games on the Quad for people to use, while other days require that plus helping with nighttime events happening in multiple spaces across campus. Not everything goes the way you might plan, sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.

    What’s the best thing about being a Student Manager?
